Both college and community support of Hall made it clear that his value to the College was greater than that of President Atwater, and their support of his position very possibly led to Atwater’s resignation. Hall outlasted the tenure of President Henry Davis and taught into the administration of President Joshua Bates. Hall resigned from Middlebury in 1824.
Among Hall’s publications are Eulogy: on the late Solomon Metcalf Allen, professor of languages in Middlebury College: Pronounced according to appointment of the president and fellows, March 17, 1818 (1818); Statistical account of the town of Middlebury, in the state of Vermont (1821); Catalogue of minerals found in the state of Vermont and in the adjacent states, together with their localities (1824).
Hall was awarded degrees from Middlebury (1806) and Dartmouth and Harvard (1810). He received his M.D. from Castleton Medical College in 1827, and an LL.D. from Dartmouth in 1841. Hall died in 1843.
